I know it feels crazy but as the days pass and the nights draw in little by little, it doesn't take much for my mind to turn to thoughts of stew and dumplings and warming classic desserts like apple crumble!
Those of you that have made the Hazelnut & Date Caramel Tart with hazelnuts from the blog will recognise this recipe, as the fantastic base makes the topping :)
This is a truly indulgent, warming, sweet treat without the worry of gluten, dairy or refined sugar, enjoy!
- 8 cooking apples
- 1/2 a cup of maple syrup (maple syrup is very sweet so please add to taste on both parts of this recipe! If you have a sweet tooth you may desire more than someone who prefers a more tarte flavour)
- 1 tsp of ground cinnamon
- Peel all of your apples, take a saucepan and once you have cored and peeled them, chops the apples into slices and add them to the pan.
- Add 1 cup of water, bring to boil then simmer until the apples are turning mulchy, then add the maple syrup and cinnamon.
- 2 cups ground almonds
- A pinch of himalayan salt
- 4 tablespoons of maple syrup
- 4 tablespoons of coconut oil
- Melt the coconut oil and maple syrup in a pan with a pinch of salt
- Add the liquid to the ground almonds in a food processor and whizz up until it makes a crumble topping consistency
- Once your apple mixture is softened enough add it to a deep dish, then pour the crumble mixture on the top and bake in the oven 175C for 15 minutes or until the crumble topping is nice and evenly golden brown
Serve with Booja Booja Vanilla ice cream
